Deo Tibba: Throne of Gods
The trek to Deo Tibba base also called the Throne of the Gods, takes you through incredibly beautiful and varied Himalayan landscape. It can be enjoyed as much by a novice to trekking, as it is by those who seek again and again the pleasures of trekking in the wilderness of the Himalayas.
